The Independent endorses Pleasanton Mayor

Jennifer Hosterman has her flaws as Pleasanton mayor. Nevertheless, she has been vigorous in promoting a green consciousness that now infuses virtually the entire Pleasanton government. Hosterman has been a real spearhead in this area.

Also, she strongly supports affordable housing, while Steve Brozosky's support for it has been inconsistent. Pleasanton is nearing buildout. A commitment to affordable housing will be more crucial than ever in the upcoming years. We think that with Hosterman in the mayor's seat, rather than Brozosky, it's more likely affordable housing will be a priority for these last remaining units.

Brozosky is running on a leadership platform. However, he has his own flaws and has failed to demonstrate leadership qualities to this newspaper, the Pleasanton Chamber of Commerce and others.

Brozosky is a nitpicker, rather than a leader. Though he pledges to bring the council and the city together, he has been disruptive, sniping at Hosterman on a regular basis, often over petty matters.

Brozosky and his supporters attack Hosterman's activism in national and global issues. They contend the mayor and council should confine themselves to local issues.

All issues are ultimately local. By bringing home the issues of the nation and world, such as global warming, mayors like Jennifer Hosterman are energizing democracy. All citizens should welcome that.

Why don't you move to Lodi or get together with the GW Bush Fan Club at the Walmart parking lot. Go back to watching Country Music Television.

Plain and simple, Brozosky and some closest to him are morally and ethically bankrupt snakes. I sure hope everyone realizes what an absolute ‘joke’ of a council member he is and the embarrassment it would be to have him as our mayor.

This is the first time I have looked at this blog, and I am disappointed with the personal insults. I am sure it is easy to say these things when you don't associate your name with your comments. Everyone should have the same goal - to do what is best for Pleasanton. We may just have different ways of achieving that goal. No need to be rude - if both sides can't get their point across by being civil, maybe they don't have a point to make in the first place.

I have recently received Bozozosky's political flyers in the mail, full of personal attacks on Jennifer.
This dude is unbelievable rude. In order not to soil my garbage can I decided to return the mail: "GARBAGE, MAIL-MAN PLEASE RETURN TO SENDER".
